Met to Open New Photo Gallery

On September 25 of this year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City will inaugurate a new gallery, the Joyce and Robert Menschel Hall for Modern Photography. This marks the museum’s first gallery for contemporary photography. With 2,000 feet of space, the hall will be able to show large pieces, some of which the museum has not yet exhibited. According to a recent news release, the first exhibit will be called Depth of Field:Contemporary Photography at the Metropolitan. It will feature photographs that the museum has collected over the past few decades. The museum plans to change exhibits twice yearly.

I'm a person who loves both words and images. A writer by profession, I'm a passionate photographer in my free time. I do not see the arts as a competitive activity, since no two people would ever create the same work even if they had the same subject. I welcome comments and suggestions from all.
